how sad it is when 'the most wonderful time of the year' passes.. but a new year begins... things have finally slowed down a bit around the house (though not at all at work) so i figured i'd better post a quick update from christmas... Say hello to the Family... and Hi Mom & Dad! (they read this too, even my dad told me i had been slow on updating)
Christmas eve was spent at my parents house where we were treated to a delicious homemade chinese dinner... and of course a few presents, as we waited up for midnight mass. renji especially loved his presents... too bad now he thinks every bag he sees must contain something for him.
Christmas dinner was at our house.. and we surprised everyone by serving up a turducken for the main course. it was actually quite good, but with 9 people over for dinner, we still had half of it leftover. it was huge! and for dessert i made tiramisu again to great avail! it ended up being a great christmas, spent with family.. exactly what the holidays are supposed to be about.
As for presents, the husband laughed about how i must really be miss domesticated diva because of the slew of domestic christmas gifts i received...
This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.
